    I suppose that the reverse is also true. That most perl programs also happen to be valid paint splatters. I'm sure some poor hacker somewhere wrote a one liner that solves travelling salesman in linear time, and displayed it proudly on the wall, only for the program to be stolen and displayed in some billionnaire's private collection of Polock paintings.

      "...the reverse is also true...solves travelling salesman in linear time..."

      Heilige Scheiße...

    I love this Quine they include in the article…

    Illegal division by zero at /tmp/ line 1.

    Save that error message as "/tmp/" (on a Unix-like system) and then run perl /tmp/
